NEW 2018 plate now ready to hit the roads!

The new Mercedes-Benz Toursimo has just been released in Europe and so Barnes felt that it was time to give this prestigious brand a go in its fleet of 40 vehicles. It promises to be one of the safest vehicles on the road as well as one of the most comfortable for passengers. This is Barnes Coaches 5th new vehicle of 2018 taking spending over £1.5 million.
